Depose Haytlan President and
Select New Leader.
ALEXIS TAKES REFUGE ON SHIP
Immense Crowd Hoot and Curse Fal
len Ruler as He Goes Aboard
French Training Ship.
Port au Prince, Dec 3. President
Nord Alexis has been deposed and is
now safe on board the French training
ship Duguay Trouin, and Port au
Princo is in the hands of the revolu
tionists. General Antoine Simon,
leader of the insurgents, is marching
up the peninsula with an army of
5,000, and a new president, General
Legitime, has been proclaimed. At
the last moment President Alexis
yielded to the urging of those about
him, and decided to take refuge
aboard the French warship.
An immense crowd of men and wo
men had assembled at tho wharf, and
the arrival of tho presidential carriage,
escorted by a battalion of infantry and
a squadron of cavalrry under command
of General Hippolyte, was the signal
for tumult and riot All along the
route the people who lined the streets
shouted, jeered and cursed at the fal
len president, but when the landing
stage was reached the mob lost all re
straint. The scene was tragic and
shameful. Infuriated women broko
through the cordon of troops and
shrieked the coarsest insults in the
very face of the president, who strove
bravely to appear undismayed.
General Canal is doing everything
possible to maintain order. Infantry
and cavalry patrol the streets and, al
though a panicky feeling remains,
there is little danger to the foreigners.
Armed sailors from the two Ameri
can cruisers and the French cruiser in
the harbor were landed at 1 :30 today.

San Francisco, Deo. 3. After 48

That Chief Biggy offered his resig
nation to Police, Commissioner Hugo
D. Keil an hour before his death, and
during the period of his visit to the
commissioner's home at Belvedere, be
came known today. Keil admits that
the missing official offered to surrender
his pos tion in the hope that the com
missioners would be relieved of news
paper criticism, to which Biggy felt
they had been subjected on his ac
count, but Keil. according to bis own
eclarat on, refused to accept or con
sider the proposal, and advised the
chief that the members of the board
would not entertain the idea of his re
signing under fire.
COSGROVE CANNOT LIVE.
ADMIT CUTTING OUT SHARP.
Union Pacific Coal Men Confess Dis
crimination, Deny Conspiracy.
Salt Lake City, Dec, 3. In the
United States District court today, J.
M. Moore, western sales agent for the
Union Pacific Coal company, and a de
fendant in the case, admitted that he
had cut off the coal supply of D. J.
Sharp, a Salt Lake coal dealer, because
Sharp insisted upon cutting the retail
price of Wyoming coal 50 cents a ton.
Mr. Moore, who, with Everett Buck
ingham, traffic manager of the Oregon
Short Line, and others, is charged with
conspiracy in restraint of trade, de
nied the conspiracy and defended hia
action toward Mr. Sharp by saying
that the dealer had violated the condi
tions under which the coal was sold to
him, and that his actions tended to dis
arrange the tariff schedules of the coal

with searchlights, were still on the

the late chief of police has been car
ried out to sea by tho tide.
Among officials of tho department
there are two theories to account for
the disappearance. A number of his
subordinates incline to the belief that
worry and grief over the newspaper
criticisims of his official and private
demeanor impelled him to end his life,
while others affirm with equal confi
